Loren Woods
Al Ahli (Premier League) confirmed in their roster experienced 38-year old Lebanese ex-international center Loren Woods (218-116kg-78, college: Arizona). He is a dual citizen owning also American passport. Woods played there last season in GCC championship.
In 2001 he was drafted by Minnesota Timbervolves (NBA) in second round (46th overall). Woods attended University of Arizona and it will be his 16th (!!!) season in pro basketball.
The list of the past achievements is quite long as among others he was voted Asia-Basket.com All-Lebanese League Defensive Player of the Year back in 2013.
Woods also played at the Arab Club Championships two years ago. His team won Bronze.
Woods is quite experienced player. His career allowed him to visit three different continents, while he played in seven different countries. Woods tasted the life as pro basketball player in Europe, Asia and of course North America. He has played previously professionally in Iran (Zob Ahan and Mahram), Lithuania (Zalgiris), Spain (CAI Zaragoza), Turkey (Anadolu Efes), NBA (Sacramento Kings), Lebanon (Al Riyadi) and D-League (Austin Spurs).
Woods is close to retirement age as a player. It's very possible he may end his playing career at Al Ahli.
On Woods: Very thin upper body, but leaps well, good timing, nice shooting touch, runs floor very well, and works on his game. If he was 30 pounds heavier, he could be a dominant player, but often times it is very hard for players of this size to gain weight. He hasn't played much so far this year and could break out like he did last year. Has had a tough season thus far and when playing against heavier players, he has trouble on offense, getting position.
